Basic shapes...or back to the chunky log

Just like in the making of Flynn, Mr. Dragon, we are going to start with a chunky log. Pinch one end and begin forming a ball shape. This will become his head. Roll the clay below the ball to form a neck. Lift this section up so he can look around, we know he can't see yet but we can pretend. For the other end; pull and roll to start forming a tail. For now it will be rough and to big but that is OK. See his big ole butt sticking up? In order for him to get that way take a finger or tool of your choice and rock it back and forth between the shoulder and hip area. Soften the curves out and shape his front and back to make them round and smooth.
